Property Description

Welcome to Rockstel Unawatuna!

Nestled away in a quiet, scenic spot surrounded by nature, Rockstel Unawatuna marks the beginning of the journey for the 'Rockstel' brand of hostels. Here you find a typical Sri Lankan country house with a twist, which has been curated and molded into a fun hostel with a unique character, through painstaking attention to detail.

As you enter, you see the paved front garden, facing the colorful social area on the front patio, with large comfy sofas to sit on. As you walk inside, you will see our friendly frontdesk staff at the reception, and a host of informative posters, a mini library, and lots of colorful detailing on the walls. Once you complete your check in formalities, you will be led to one of our thematically designed rooms. The hostel has 1 air-conditioned dorm with hot water, 3 other dorm rooms with fans, and 1 private room . Two of the rooms have ensuite washrooms, and the others share the two additional washrooms. You will also be provided with a key to your individual locker, for your valuables.

While the hostel is a 20 minute walk from the main beach, it is quite centrally located from all four beaches in Unawatuna that travellers frequent, and we feel that if we were located closer to any one beach, we will be further from the rest. Having said that, its still a bit of a walk, so we have made scooter rentals available for you through third party providers. If you want to be driven somewhere, our staff would be more than happy to organise a tuk tuk for you. If you are adventurous enough, you can even rent a tuk tuk and ride it yourself.

At The Rockstel Unawatuna, we take pride in being considered the best party hostel in Unawatuna, and to this end we organise events at the hostel every night, such as drinking games, quiz nights, and a host of other activities. We can guarantee you that you will make some memories and friends that you wouldn't forget for a life time.

Eagerly Awaiting to Welcome you at our hostel in the jungle

    The best hostel I’ve stayed at so far in Sri Lanka! I only booked two nights but extended for nine; then volunteered for three more weeks. Such a social place and the team made my stay feel like home. Clean and a nice commune area. If you’re in Unawatuna, I highly suggest staying at Rockstel! Thank you Rajiv and Ukku for such a memorable experience :)

    My favorite hostel in Sri Lanka! Great staff and volunteers made for a very social and homely atmosphere. A chill place, yet lots of stuff happening and easy to be included in the group as a solo traveler. Big bonus: the best omelet for breakfast included, and an optional cheap and tasty family dinner every night. For all of the reasons above I returned at the end of my travels for a second stay, and it made for the perfect end of my trip.

    Wonderful hostel filled with wonderful people. A very social hostel but calming rooms so you can rest and retreat if you need. They offer an evening meal which is well priced and delicious and always a great way to meet people. Clean rooms and showers and a great overall feel to the hostel. It feels like a big house. Would highly recommend.

    This was my last stay in Sri Lanka before heading home and I was so glad a stayed here. Incredible staff that are extremely friendly and helpful. They do a home cooked evening meal every night at the hostel for all the guests which is a great way to meet travellers and eat some great food. The hostel is slightly out of the town area and is about a 20min walk from the beach. Overall beds were comfy, rooms were clean and good atmosphere. Definitely chose here if you're staying in Unawatuna.
